There will be a guest lecture at the opening of each session and regular oral presentations. There will be also a new format of two minutes oral presentation of posters called “flash presentation” (before the corresponding poster session).
1. “Regular” oral Presentations
They will last 12 minutes. Of these, 1 minute will be used by the moderator for this session and for the presenter to take place to begin your presentation. Each communication must be prepared (and tested) to finish in no more than 11 minutes. Each speaker must be extremely rigorous respect to the limit and complete the talk in 11 minutes (or less) as moderators will be very strict in maintaining this limit and a inflexibly cut those presentations that exceed this limit (Thus it is expected that each speaker has a large respect to other speakers and audience presentation having well prepared to complete their talks in the 11 minutes expected).
2. “Flash” Presentations (2 minutes):
There is a competition of “Three Minutes Thesis” that began a decade ago in Queensland and currently takes in more than 200 universities around the world. If you can explain the most important aspects of a thesis 3′, this time should be sufficient to present our poster and attract visitors to them (or encourage them to discuss them in food or coffee, or even beyond Symposium). These presentations and poster sessions will be organized as a “carousel” presentations immediately before the poster session.
“Flash presentations” will include only two power-point slides per poster: The first, containing the title, to introduce the subject, and the second with key results and conclusion. Submissions that do not respect these conditions will not be loaded and therefore will not be displayed on the carousel presentations. Everyone knows that on the poster (and particularly through discussions with the author) there is much more to see, learn, discuss and enjoy. This two-minute presentation is not the last opportunity to discuss your work at the Symposium (or later), it’s just a way to attract other participants to this discussion.
Moderators will be very strict checking that (i) each poster is summarized in just two slides with the structure established above, (ii) each presenter will not use more than 2 minutes in the “flash presentation “. If you are one of our presenters of posters, be encouraged to meet this challenge.
During the first day of the symposium, participants will be informed about the panel assigned to your poster. The maximum size of the posters is 120 x 80 cm. The material for fixing will be provided during the registration of participants.
The poster should cover the key points of your work. The ideal poster is designed to (1) attract attention; (2) provide an overview of your research; and (3) initiate discussion and questions.
The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITALS about 25mm (1″) high. The authors’ names and affiliation should be placed under the title. You can add a photo of the poster presenter in this area if you want.
Prepare your poster before the symposium carefully. There will be no time or materials late in the symposium.
Use colours to highlight the poster and make it more attractive. Use drawings, figures, diagrams, etc., rather than only text.
The smaller font size of your poster should be at least 9 mm, and the most important points should be in a larger size.
Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible.
